Dvorak?

I experimented with it when I was in college.

*Turn Evil can now be cast on players. When used, it applies a small goatee and causes them to explain their diabolical plans while steepling their fingers.

(just think of time wasted redoing hotkeys in everything, nevermind programs that don't let you rebind),


I already face that myself despite using a QWERTY keyboard. I just can't stand using the whole "industry standard WASD" setup because of how scrunched up it makes my hand feel and how inefficient it is.

Logic is the antithesis of faith, else why is it that faith defies logic while logic denies faith?

I have never attempted to learn. There is simply no reason for me.

Also, there are many times when I am forced to use qwerty anyway, so it makes sense to stick to that instead.

Ain't the first time I've heard that.

Nope. The evidence behind the claim that Dvorak is faster is hardly convincing if one looks at the big picture.

I tried it once for a few days. Learning a new layout is a lot harder than it sounds. Got frustrated and never tried it again.

One of my favorite composers.

Love that 7th symphony.

I used it for a week but I got really annoyed how it messed with all of the keyboard shortcuts I usually do. I want to close a browser tab with alt+ w with the keyboard position w, not the letter w.

I got pretty fast with typing with it.

While the slight benefits are there it doesn't warrant completely rewiring my muscle memory. Besides, 95 WPM is more than enough.

I did in 2007. I liked it better than qwerty. But eventually, I switched back so that I could use computers elsewhere besides home.
